Backflow Prevention

Backflow Tester Resource List

Testers who want to be included on the Cal Water tester resource list must attend a Backflow Tester Meeting. In addition they are required to submit a tester information sheet and provide evidence of backflow prevention assembly tester certification from either the California-Nevada Section of the American Water Works Association or the American Backflow Prevention Association along with their backflow test kit calibration. Testers are responsible for providing the Cal Water districts in which they test with any updates to certification and test kit calibration throughout the year in order to maintain their list eligibility.
